Paris, Provence and the Painters of Modern Life : France September 2013 The mid 19th century marks the birth of Paris as the modern capital we know today with its wide open spaces, theatres, train stations, bars and cafes. In response to this rapidly changing urban landscape, artists created works that challenged longstanding traditions and ideals, turning their attention instead to contemporary reality. Led by Wendy Joyce this tour begins with nine days in Paris where you will gain insight into life in the 19thcentury art capital, visiting monuments, sites, and neighborhoods favoured by the artists and their friends. In the Musee d’Orsay you will see masterpieces representative of major art movements of the time (Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism). From Paris you travel north to Giverny, Normandy and then the tour heads south to Provence, in the footsteps of Paul Cezanne where you will visit the landscapes he painted near his home in Aix-enProvence as he carried art from the 19th century into the modern era.

INTRODUCTION TO THE HISTORY AND CULTURE OF SCANDINAVIA

Scandinavia is often one of the less familiar areas of Europe for New Zealanders, who may know of Vikings, fjords, the settlement of Dannevirke, and neutrality and social democracy in the 20th century. These two talks include different perspectives on Scandinavian history and cover the lives of key cultural figures, such as Hans Christian Andersen, Edvard Grieg, Henrik Ibsen and Carl Larsson. This course is a great introduction to the 2013 Cultural Heritage of Scandinavia study tour – see the listing on the front of the brochure.

SPEAKING OUT IN CHINA: FROM CONFUCIUS TO THE INTERNET

Confucius was a critic of his times. So, too, are many tweeters and bloggers in China today. Commentators marvel at the new opportunities for ‘speaking out’ that the internet gives to Chinese people. Others, however, observe the speed, dexterity and ingenuity with which political authorities move to stifle dissident voices and manipulate the new media for their own purposes. This course assesses the significance of the internet revolution in China today by situating it within the long history of Chinese people ‘speaking out’, from ancient to modern times, and the critics’ perennial struggles with the authorities who tried to silence them. It looks for continuities between the past and present, and asks whether internet technology might be giving power to civil society in a way that is unprecedented in Chinese history. Pauline Keating is a Teaching Fellow in history at Victoria University and has been teaching Chinese history for more than 20 years. Her research focuses on Chinese rural cooperatives in the 20th century and ‘grassroots democracy’ in China. →→ 6pm–8pm, Tuesdays 22, 29 October & 5, 12 November →→ Fee: $110 ($99) Course: 13C030A

Creative nonFiction

Nonfiction is sometimes called the fourth genre or the literature of reality. The term creative nonfiction refers to any kind of nonfiction writing that uses the techniques of narrative fiction. In practice, this tends to mean the memoir, the personal essay, the biographical sketch, travel writing and other kinds of prose lifewriting. In this intensive course you will be able to focus on a specific area of interest and receive guidance in the particular issues associated with nonfiction writing. Catharina van Bohemen completed the MA in Creative Writing in 2008, during which she wrote about walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. In A Passion for Travel (ed. Tina Shaw, Random Press 1998) she wrote about being on safari in Zimbabwe.

THE ART AND CRAFT OF ‘CHAPTER BOOK’ WRITING

Stories for newly independent and maturing readers have an important – but often unsung – place in children’s literature. A good ‘chapter book’, as young readers call them, is a model of good story telling that has a shapely narrative relayed with economy and precision. Through a series of guided exercises, character development and analysis of a range of chapter book literature, you will explore how to approach the writing of this genre, which can be as effective and memorable as its more substantial relation, the full-blown children’s novel. Kate De Goldi writes fiction for all ages and across several forms. Her novel The 10pm Question has won awards in New Zealand and overseas. Her most recent title, The ACB with Honora Lee, is a novel for young readers. Kate teaches creative writing in schools throughout the country and frequently facilitates children’s writing workshops for adults. →→ 10am–4:30pm, Saturdays 22, 29 June & 6, 13 July →→ Fee: $395 (see our website for pre-course activity) Course: 13C031A

Victoria Continuing Education

The increasing development of buildings designed to collectively house our galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM), along with innovative models of joined-up operation provide both challenges and opportunities for the cultural heritage sector. The tightening of resources, new tourism ventures, increasing community engagement and changes in technology are considered the drivers for the proliferation of this new GLAMorous way of thinking. Should our galleries, libraries, archives and museums work together to build GLAMour and, if so, how should they do this? This one-day seminar provides a forum for academics, practitioners and members of the public to meet and consider the future of GLAMorous practice. The seminar concludes with a panel discussion chaired by Professor Eric Ketelaar, Professor Emeritus at the University of Amsterdam. Eric Ketelaar was General State Archivist (National Archivist) of The Netherlands from 1989–97. From 1997 to 2009, he was Professor of Archivistics in the Department of Media Studies of the University of Amsterdam.

THE FLYING DUTCHMAN: AN INTRODUCTION TO WAGNER’S OPERA

Richard Wagner’s libretto is based on the weirdly picturesque legend of the Dutch sea captain who tries to round the Cape of Good Hope in a furious gale, swearing he will succeed even if he has to sail forever. He is condemned by the Devil to sail the seas until Judgement Day, unless he finds a woman who would love him faithfully unto death. In this, his second staged opera, Wagner began to develop his system of ‘leading motives’. These were associated with particular characters, dramatic developments and the violence and calm of the ocean’s moods, which became the innovative core of his later music dramas. His choice of subject was influenced by a sea voyage to London in wild storms that lasted three weeks instead of eight days. Wagner’s opera, The Flying Dutchman, features in the NBR New Zealand Opera’s 2013 programme at the St James Theatre, Wellington from 14–21 September. Peter Baillie is a well-known Wellington tenor with a long and distinguished career in Europe and Australia. He sings and teaches opera in New Zealand and internationally. →→ 2pm–5pm, Sunday 8 September →→ Fee: $45 ($40.50)

Photography is a mixture of science and art. In this course you will explore picture making as more than a collection of technical elements. You will learn that ‘good’ photographs come from a combination of creative processes and strong technical skills, and when purposefully melded they create the ‘perfect storm’ allowing you to make images that matter to you and your viewers. Jordyn O’Keefe has been teaching adults how to be creative through the medium of photography for the past decade. She holds an advanced diploma of photography from Massey University, and her work has appeared in Next Magazine.

WORLD WAR II, THE RESISTANCE AND THE HOLOCAUST IN ITALIAN LITERATURE

→→ 6pm-8pm, Wednesdays 4 September to 6 November (10 sessions) →→ Fee: $340 Course: 13CF03A

World War II was a crucial period in Italy’s history. The country experienced a doomed alliance with Germany and the persecution of Italian Jews, the armistice, the Resistance and, finally, liberation. At the end of what many historians now consider a civil war, Italy turned from dictatorship to democracy for the first time in its history. This course studies the short stories and books that examine this period of Italy’s history, including: Renato Amato’s ‘Only a Matter of Grammar’ (in The Full Circle of the Travelling Cuckoo, 1967); Beppe Fenoglio’s Una questione privata (1963, translated as A Private Affair, 2007); Curzio Malaparte’s La Pelle (1947, translated as The Skin, 1988); and Primo Levi’s Se questo è un uomo (1947 and 1958, translated as If This is a Man in 1959). All of these books are available in English translation. Barbara Pezzotti teaches Italian language and culture at Victoria University. She has published several articles and book chapters on Italian contemporary literature. She is also a former journalist for the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 ore (the Italian equivalent of the Financial Times or Wall Street Journal). →→ 6pm–8pm, Tuesdays 6, 13, 20 & 27 August →→ Fee: $110 ($99)

Course: 13C026A

REJECTING ‘THE EYES OF OTHERS’: WOMEN WRITING ABOUT THE SELF IN THE EARLY-20TH CENTURY

Women in the early-20th century were renegotiating their place in a changing world: a world where suffrage was a possibility or a reality, where a significant proportion of a generation of men had been wiped out and social mores were evolving rapidly. Women’s writing that incorporates versions of the self in the Modernist period – one obsessed with representing psychological realism – records and investigates this process of renegotiation. This course studies the methods of self-representation demonstrated in several texts written by women like Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf, and how these texts respond to the pressures exerted on women writers by this changing society. Elizabeth Towl is best known as a medievalist but also has a specific interest in life-writing. She enjoys teaching on both women’s writing and writing representing women. Elizabeth graduated with her PhD in English from the University of Otago in 2011. →→ 6pm–8pm, Tuesdays 10 September to 15 October (6 sessions) →→ Fee: $160 ($144) Course: 13C028A
